1 Tim. 5:19-21 (ESV)
Do not admit a charge against an elder except on the evidence of two or three witnesses.  As for those who persist in sin, rebuke them in the presence of all, so that the rest may stand in fear.  In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus and of the elect angels I charge you to keep these rules without prejudging, doing nothing from partiality.
The honor bestowed on the office goes further than just pay. It continues into things like accusations. Paul says don’t entertain them except on the evidence of two or three witnesses. They deserve that much, they should not be in constant fear that someone can make an accusation against them and it will be admitted without any basis. But Paul continues if they are guilty, and do not repent rebuke them publicly. They are worthy of double honor, but double shame for not repenting of sin.
